Rockefeller University joins the Dryad Digital Repository

The Markus Library is happy to announce that The Rockefeller University is now a member of the Dryad Digital Repository.

The Dryad Digital Repository is a curated resource that makes published research data discoverable, freely reusable, and citable and is used by a number of institutions and publishers including Yale, Columbia, Stanford, UC Berkley, eLife, and Oxford University Press.

Dryad will provide members of the Rockefeller University with a general-purpose home for a wide diversity of data types and assist our researchers in complying with the new upcoming NIH Data Management and Sharing policy

Importantly Dryad is

  • Flexible about data format, while encouraging the use and further development of research community standards.
  • Fits into the manuscript submission workflow of its partner journals, making data submission easy.
  • Assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to data so that researchers can gain professional credit through data citation.
  • Promotes data visibility through usage and download metrics and by allowing content to be indexed, searched and retrieved.
  • Promotes data quality by employing professional curators to ensure the validity of the files and descriptive information.
  • Contents are free to download and re-use under a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.
  • Contents are preserved for the long term to guarantee access to contents indefinitely.
